The Death of a Diplomat Author:Peter Oldfeld Here is a breathtaking mystery so up-to-the-minute that it happens in the shadow of the League of Nations palace at Geneva. Delegates from all over the world are assembled for the opening of the Conference. Among them are the French and German Ambassadors who, through the good offices of the secretarty of the British delegation, have signed a se... more »cret treaty which will benefit their respective countries. It is intrusted to a diplomat who is to place it in a safe until they return home.
The young secretary is congratulating himself on having brought off a coup when word is brought to him that the safe has been rifles, its guardian murdered, and the treaty has disappeared. Realizing that the peace of Europe is imperilled he resolves to recover the precious document at all costs. How he does this, with the aid of a plucky American girl who is covering the Conference for a Chicago newspaper, is left to the reader. Suffice it to say that their lives are in danger at every step, sinister forces constantly seek to thwart them, and that each move must be made with the utmost secrecy.« less
